Import data into Google Contacts & Calendar

After your account is converted from Zimbra to Google, you will receive two e-mails from ITS. One will have your calendar data attached, and the other will have your contacts data attached. With just a few clicks, you can easily import this data into your new Google account.


  1. In Gmail, open the e-mail you received from ITS
  2. Look for the "contacts.vcf" file attachment, and click the "Import into contacts" button

2) Import the data

  1. Open your calendar by clicking the "Calendar" link at the top of your browser window, and look for "My calendars" on the left.
